Joint Support – HYALURONIC ACID – Nature’s “Shock Absorber” for Your Joints
The Fluid Between the Spaces
Don’t let the word “acid” in the name fool you – Hyaluronic Acid doesn’t break the body down, it builds it up! Hyaluronic Acid naturally resides in your body’s connective tissue, a key part of your joint structure. Without healthy joints, your body’s movements may become restricted or even painful – mobility may be decreased which could curtail normal activity. Hyaluronic Acid is part of your body’s “shock absorber” system and is critical to the way your bones, muscles and cartilage work together. Healthy skin and eyes also contain Hyaluronic Acid.
Per a recognized biochemistry text, Hyaluronic Acid is a vital component of connective tissue. Connective tissue exists in various forms, including cartilage, tendons, intervertebral discs and synovial (joint) fluid. Hyaluronic Acid is most abundant in joint fluid, where it acts as a lubricant.
- A natural component of the body’s connective tissue, including the skin
- Joint fluid (synovial fluid) contains Hyaluronic Acid molecules
- The skin content of Hyaluronic Acid decreases as we age
- Naturally found between the lens and the retina of the eyes
